Ursula (Usarapa) is a member of the A-Team and the Alpha Gang. In the anime, she is more of a comic relief character lacking much intelligence or skill, while the arcade game and DS game make her more serious and capable.
Like Zoe Drake, Ursula's outfit differs between the anime and the DS Game/arcade.
In the anime, Ursula wears a dark red, jumpsuit-like outfit, where it connects to her Alpha Gang choker. A diamond-shaped cut out in her jumpsuit reveals her navel. She wears a burgundy-colored cloak with pointed edges. On her arms, she has a light pink glove that reveals her fingers and runs up to the upper arm. She wears red high heels.
She often thinks herself as the leader of the A-Team. She is very smart, sneaky, opportunistic, manipulative, proud, charming, but also snobbish, conceited, arrogant, and mostly cares about herself. She often sees herself as regal, laying back as somewhat of a princess while Zander and Ed usually do the hard laborships of their missions and thinks highly of herself. She, along with Dr. Z, Zander, and Ed (but not Rod, Laura, and Helga) take a huge dislike of Max, Rex, and Zoe. She, Zander, and Ed would frequently bully the D-Team, but they always win, and the kids would help solve their problems sometimes. Her primary weakness is the fact that she reveals her location whenever someone calls her an old lady (even when someone calls another person an old lady).
Like Zander and Ed, Ursula was put in a orphanage. While she stayed there she caused a lot of trouble, so Dr. Z adopted her, alongside Zander, Ed, and Rod and Laura's dad. He treated them with love and care as a father.
- Prehistory in the Making Arc
She first appears on Zeta Point's beach, watching as Terry chases Dr. Z about. After Chomp and Terry's battle, she appears and takes Terry's card. Once they make their first exit, she returns as Zoe calls her an "old lady", sparking a running gag throughout the series.
- "What did you call me?! I am NOT old!!"
- "Good thing this was a rental!"
- "You make it very hard for me to be nice!!"
- "I'm 16, I have been for years!"
In the manga, Ursula is part of the Alpha Gang, and she appears to look more like she's 16, looking prettier and casual. She has shown to be a bit nicer than in the anime, and she smiles a lot and often shouts her commands and threats smiling, or with a look of disapproval.
Ursula took control of the leader of the Pterosaurs, and she put a bone mask on his face to cover the micro chip she was using to control him. Ursula then used him to fight Max, where Max was saved by Junior, the leader of the Pterosaurs' son. He asked him if he could help him defeat his father and remove the chip controlling him, which Max agrees to. With Junior's Metal Wing, they manage to break the mask, and Max falls on the Pterosaur's face from Junior's exhaustion, and he quickly removes the micro chip. Max then kicks Ursula so hard she flies into the sky.
The Pterosaur becomes normal again and the whole herd of Pterosaurs rejoice, including Junior.
- Physical Resistance: Like the rest of the comic relief-prone Alpha Gang, she has the physical prowess to survive the endless slapstick torture that constantly beats them down, often in cartoonish ways that are artifacts of this show being animated and humorous.
- Surges of Strength: Whenever severely angered, she can erupt in a sudden surge of rage-induced strength that can lift boulders.
- High Intellect: Ursula has demonstrated to be extremely smart and quick-witted (though not so much in the anime), and she can use her intelligence with cunning. Accordingly, she is also definitely smarter and more adept than Zander and Ed, however little this may mean.
- Leadership: She is an adept leader, at least outside the anime, where she usually fails and blames someone else.
- Charm: Even if Ursula is often called "Old Lady" by her enemies, she has demonstrated to have a extraordinary physical charm. In the anime, this only attracts those she doesn't like and never those she does.
Appearances in Other MediaEdit
In the 4komas, Ursula is occasionally seen ordering Alpha Droids carrying food around, just to have the food disappear, either because it was eaten by Zander and Ed or because Rod and Laura can't cook fast enough.
